Mounting Case Fans inside G5 Case

Recommended Posts

So i am starting my G5 retrofit. I was wondering how people ended up mounting fans into the case. I saw some pictures of people buying long screws it looks like and mounting them down.

 

I would like a very clean look so any input of a clean way to mount some fans would be great.

 

If possible i would prefer to not use the stock pieces.

How much would you want to pay (including worldwide shipping) for what is essentially a precision cut piece of plastic with two holes and a small square punched out ?

 

Initial estimates for the the actual piece of perspex before shipping come in at about £9 per unit if I order 10 in one go !

 

Add shipping and you're looking at about £15 I guess.

I'm still waiting on the tech department at my college, but the perspex cutter is broken and the timescale for its 'soon'. Possibly the least helpful response possible other than 'not soon'

 

As for how it's fixed in - it's hardly heavy with two plastic fans mounted on it and should fit fine without any form of proper adhesive as it's such a good fit, although I will supply a sticky foam of sorts that secures the perspex in. Pictures soon.

    • It seems nice that chris1111 provided a patch, but I can't -- in good conscience -- download a random binary file from github and run it on my system.    What is so proprietary about his patch that he can't include source? I think I'll wait until the updated driver comes out before I update... 
    • hey MaLd0n  It's been a while since I used clover, so a lot of things went rusty. Can you please look at my setup and guide/help what should be done next?  https://fex.net/354949878474?fileId=441517695   Current setup:  GA-Z97X-UD3H Xeon e3 1245v3  Msi GTX 1050ti Gaming X
    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
